2017 BMW X1 vs 2017 Audi Q3 in Fort Walton Beach, FL

*Vehicle shown above is of the 2017 BMW X1 xDrive28i.

When you’re in the market for a new subcompact SUV, you want to know you’re settling down with the one that meets your needs best. To assist with your research, we at BMW of Fort Walton Beach compiled a matchup between two of the top contenders: the 2017 BMW X1 vs 2017 Audi Q3 in Fort Walton Beach, FL. In more ways than one, the X1 effortlessly prevails against the Q3.

In terms of performance, the Audi Q3 pales in comparison to the BMW X1. As standard, the 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine in the 2017 X1 propels forward at 228 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2017 Q3’s 2.0T 4-cylinder powertrain lags behind, as it only produces 200 horsepower and 207 lb.-ft. of torque. To build on this, the Q3 continues to struggle to keep up with the X1’s performance features. The standard offering in the Audi Q3 is the 6-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission, a more limited option when put side-by-side to the BMW X1’s standard 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission, which also integrates Sport and Manual shift modes.

Next up in this head-to-head battle, we’ll take a look at how these two subcompact SUVs compare when it comes to interior volume. Cabin space is crucial, especially in a vehicle of this size. But, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much the BMW X1 has to offer, and less-than-thrilled with the Audi Q3’s ratings. In the back of the X1, you’ll have an ample 27.1 cubic ft. of cargo space at your disposal. If you’re in the Q3, though, you’ll have just 16.7 cubic ft. of trunk space. While we do find out that both vehicles equip a split-folding rear seat in this comparison of the 2017 BMW X1 vs 2017 Audi Q3 in Fort Walton Beach, FL, only one comes out on top in terms of cargo volume. The X1 features 61.5 cubic ft. of total cargo volume1, while the Q3 offers just 48.2 cubic ft. of total cargo room.

On top of this, the BMW X1 continues to keep its lead with standard features. Perfect for accessing your cargo area, the 2017 X1 comes equipped with a power tailgate in all trims. This amenity is supremely convenient, as it opens and closes the tailgate for you via the push of a button. If you want access to this feature in the Audi Q3, you’ll have to upgrade trim levels, as it does not come standard in its base trim. An additional quality that comes standard in the BMW X1 is Advanced Vehicle and Key Memory, which includes features like an engine Start/Stop button. The Audi Q3, unfortunately, only offers its Audi Advanced Key System in top trims.

This is all for now for our battle between the 2017 BMW X1 vs 2017 Audi Q3 in Fort Walton Beach, FL. And, we at BMW of Fort Walton Beach think the X1 won by a longshot! Contact us today to learn more about this sensational subcompact SUV.
